Details

Claudio Ojeda transforms one of the most mystical creatures in the animal kingdom into alebrije form. He carves it from copal wood and hand-paints its scales with a combination of linear and geometric patterns in bright yellow, spring green, and blue against a flame orange background.

Claudio learned to craft alebrijes as a young child from his mother. His work embodies her motto - bring the alebrijes to life by painting them with love and care.

"Hauntingly Delightful"

What a delightfully charming way to bring attention to this very endangered species. The Rainbow Pangolin has a place of honor in my collection.

"Fun and festive goats!"

These adorable goats are beautifully decorated! I bought them for a friend to remind her that she is the GOAT - the greatest of all time! They would also be perfect for someone who just likes goats.
